I used a couple of ordinary standard LEDs as a transmitter and receiver pair in the bottle cap which could be then simply be screwed on to the mask cup itself.

Eyelid movement could hopefully be detected by measuring the variations in the reflected light and maybe act as a REM sensor.

Ideally you would then amplify and process this analogue signal into a digital form.

This is a simple experiment based on the Ganzfeld effect in order to help induce visual hypnagogic hallucinations using coloured lighting whilst relaxed.

For this project a scrap tri-colour LED has been utilised in my sleep mask by fitting the component in the underside of the blue cap.

Project ‘Roxanne’

This is another Halovision hack, except a lighter and a more sleeker webcam arrangement has been fitted to the mask cup via the blue screw cap.

A matching group of three red LEDs mounted in the cup have also been used to provide the background illumination for the camera itself.

Halovision camera hack

A standard external usb web cam can be fitted to my i-cup assembly providing the bore or hole diameter is increased in the cup itself to enable neck mounting.

The whole mask camera set-up can be worn directly over your one eye.
